Exceeded our expectations - A Wonderful Cottage in a great location
We stayed here October 2020, originally we had booked for two familes to stay, however due to the restrictions only one family went (which fortunatley was us). The owner at the time (Eileen) was extremely helpful and due to the Covid situation did everything she could to make our stay wonderful. Checking in was easy, there is a space for 1 car, right outside the cottage & just a short 2-3 min walk is small car park. On arrival was a bottle of wine waiting for us in the fridge and delicious biscuits (a very lovely touch). The Cottage was very clean, the lounge area was so cosy with a fire, two seating areas made it feel spacious with the outside veranda, perfect for storing your bikes in. It was too cold to use this area, in the Spring or summer it would be perfect. with the BBQ and seating area. The kitchen was well equipped and a good size. The upstairs is spacious, as we were a family of four we had lots of space. There are two lovely double bedrooms (ensuite) either end of the house, one over looking the other houses (small car park) and the other over looking the stream. In the middle is a bunk bedroom and a single bedroom, very comfortable. There is also a bathroom for these two rooms, plenty of bathrooms. It is so peaceful but within walking distance to the spa, outdoor Pool, Restaurant/Bar (Balihoo) and Hub (all within 3-5 min walk). We hired bikes from the Hub, the area of the complex is beautiful, with much wildlife, woodlands, cycling paths and all gated for added security. It feels very safe and calming. The Balihoo Club (restaurant/bar) was really nice we ate there one morning for breakfast and dinner one night. The Cottage was so cosy after a few hours walking or bike riding we just wanted to get back in front of the fire, with a glass of wine and relax, so we ate a few times back at the Cottage. The complex has everything, however we did venture out and drove to Stowe on the Wold, Bibury, Bourton on the water, these are around 30-45 mins away, a wonderful route. We also stopped at Daylesford Farm shop, which also has a bar, cafe, flower shop it is lovely and worth a visit. We really enjoyed our stay at River Cottage, extremely relaxing, comfortable and homely. Our two Children (4 & 11) enjoyed the outdoor heated Pool and the bike ride around the woods and complex. We would love to visit again in the future and hopefully with the family that was not able to come. We have not stopped talking about it. Thank you

Excellent family holiday
The property was delightful. It was spacious with everything a family could want to provide a comfortable holiday. The area, Cotswold water park has so much to do we wished we could have stayed longer

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful place with stunning views and walks. Very welcoming, clean and lovely property. The host even left wine, cupcakes and milk in the fridge for our arrival. Would love to visit again with friends.

Perfect cottage
We had a wonderful short break in this lovely cottage. Everything we could need was available to us when checked in - including some thoughtful gifts in the fridge. The outdoor area was a great place to spend the one warm evening we had and the views from the bedrooms are great on a sunny day. Would highly recommend.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect weekend break
Beautifully furnished cottage in lovely setting. The mill village is very peaceful, clean and has a restaurant and small shop within walking distance. Enjoyed walking around the lakes and to nearby village. Great place for dogs too.
